Back in the day, removing facial hair was a very simple process. You’d squeeze a handful of sugar crystals in your razor, shave away, rinse, and you were good to go. Fast forward to 2018, and we have a far more modern approach to shaving.
And that’s great news, because modern technology has been devised to solve most of the annoying, time consuming, and downright gross side effects of our ever-evolving techniques. With the help of technology and innovation, we can finally solve the age-old face shaving riddle.
Why You Should Consider Electrolysis
‘Contrary to popular belief that electrolysis isn’t safe, only less than 1% of electrolysis patients experience serious complications.’
– Several patients experience symptoms of nausea, dizziness or vomiting
– Repeated treatments often require multiple visits to the salon
How it Works:
– An electrolysis technician applies several electrodes to a patient’s face over the course of several hours, burning away the facial hair in the process
– The process feels like little more than a bit of raking over your skin
The Reversible Process
– Using electrolysis treatments once a week for 5 to 7 years helps prevent the onset of the acne.
How Electrolysis Works
Here’s how it works:
Fill up a room with 80 to 100 percent pure oxygen.
Get a technician to blindfold you.

Be given an anesthetic and tranquilizer. The technician numbs your face and cleanses it.
The technician inserts a metal filament in your skin so it coats the hair follicles and stops them from growing.

Understanding the Process and Pain
Invented by dermatologists back in the early 1900s, electrolysis is probably the oldest and most popular treatment for removal of facial hair—and is now the number one way women all over the world permanently remove their facial hair.
In short, electrolysis is a simple, safe and painless way to get rid of unwanted facial hair. And you won’t need to take any major time off work.
A buzz cut or razor burn may still occur, but the procedure is safe and painless in 99 percent of cases, even for those with sensitive skin.
In fact, in my experience, electrosurgery is the only way to safely remove the straggly patches of skin and little or no facial hair, due to its results (no more lines) and ease of treatment.
If you want to ensure you avoid future ingrown hairs, shaving is highly overrated.
